I had a work related back injury last summer, had surgery, went thru physical therapy...still in lots of pain. The surgery doc was prescribing me the 500mg hydrocodone for my pain which never helped....he never would prescibe me anything stronger. My family doc started prescribing me loratab which did help but still not fully. To make a long story short both docs have been prescribing me pain pills and i've been trying to manage my own pain. Now the surgery doc is sending me to a pain management program and i'm scared to death that they pain management folks are going to be upset and think i'm doctor shopping....which in reality I was....trying to habdle my own pain. What do I do? Should I be worried?
